Ashley Perez lives in the gray spaces of all of her identities (queerdo mixed-race Mexican Angeleno is the closest she can get to to summarize it all.) She writes and causes trouble in Los Angeles. She has a strong affinity for tattoos, otters, cat mystery books, and actual cats, but has mixed feelings about pants. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University Los Angeles. She runs the literary site Arts Collide and does work of all varieties for Women Who Submit, Entropy, Jaded Ibis Press, and Midnight Breakfast. Her work can be found at Lost Balloon, The Nervous Breakdown, The Weeklings, Red Light Lit, and others. You can find her on Twitter at @ArtsCollide.
